It's Officially Summer

Summer Soltice.
Schools are out. (Late here, I know)
June 21.
Whatever you call it, summer starts today officially. For me it arrived with temps of 83 degrees. Not bad after all the June Gloom we've had.
See, I annouced summer on May 1st back when here in Southern California we saw our first day in the 80 degree spectrum.
I even invited you to a summer barbecue. Well, all that was premature because June Gloom hit and it hit hard.
I'm a little on the fence with the summer soltice. I love that it is the longest day of the year(sun light wise)!
I've been loving the sun come up before 6am and set after 8pm.
So why am I on the fence? I'll tell you after today the days start getting shorter.
Not a fan.
But, I'll celebrate today for what it is. Late date night with Techie Husband for dinner and a concert. Love him!
What about you?
Do you like the longer daylight and wish it would last? How did you celebrate this official start of summer?

The 21st of June is always the Music Festival in France. Every square inch of every french town has bands and music for everyone to enjoy! It is a great way to kick in the summer!
